New war, new casualties

Back from war in Afghanistan, many Oklahoma veterans are finding a new battleground in civilian life.


Ben Fenwick
World War II: The invasion of Italy at Anzio, a beachhead south of Rome, proved to be one of the grimmest battles fought by Americans. A force of more than 150,000 troops that included Oklahoma’s 45th Infantry Division — the Thunderbirds — spent months fighting the Germans for the road to Rome. They suffered some of the worst casualties of the war. By the end, 43,000 Allied troops, nearly a third, were killed or injured.

The Revenant

Ain’t no trip to ‘Zombieland.’


Rod Lott
I recently had a discussion with friends about the increasing trend of self-aggrandizing Twitter bios of locals who think so mighty highly of themselves, they must brag to the Internet about their amazing awesomeness! Our theory is, if you have to tell the world you're a "creative genius" or "master of [fill in the blank]," you're more than likely not. Real genius speaks for itself.

You kidding me?

Letters to the Editor

Larry Stem
When I started reading the letter to the editor titled “Hooray for G.W.” (May 8, Oklahoma Gazette) by David Oliver, I thought it some tart satire.
